If you are interested in sponsoring a horse, we set up an appointment so you can come out and meet the available horses. We will tell you about our various ways to sponsor and from there we will try to match you to a horse that is suitable for you abilities. No experience is necessary. We have horses of all levels. We provide on site daily care and the stall for the horse. The fee for each horse is on our web site as it varies from horse to horse. We are a rescue, a quarantine facility and sanctuary.

More about this rescue

Our mission and vision is to provide a safe haven for all horses that are asymptomatic carriers of Equine Infectious Anemia within the state of Florida. We will also accept any horse in immediate need of assistance within the Broward County area thus preventing their needless destruction. By having people in the community sponsor the horses they can live out their lives happy and healthy with both herd and human interaction, care and love. It is our moral position we must continue to advocate for and participate in ongoing research to find a cure as well as to factually educate the public regarding EIA thus allowing us to dispel the myths and misconceptions that lead owners to think the only legal alternative is to euthanize their horse.
As our ethical obligation to the surrounding communities, we will continue to give back to them in a worthwhile and enriching way by maintaining and enhancing our many programs that benefit local families and organizations thereby positively impacting the entire community.
